Right on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully landscaped, very comfy house was everything we wanted!! It has a great deck off the main room and then 3 different terraced levels going down to the beach. We mainly stayed at the bottom level, which is about 6 feet above the sand. The house is in the surfing section of the beach (although swimming section is 20 feet to the south), so you have great views of surfers all day long. The house is well equipped, nice kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, nice hot tub, gas grill, outdoor rinse shower (not private), umbrellas, and very well stocked with towels. The bunk room beds are very small, but would be great for a family with young children. And the sleeping loft is kind of a challenge, with a ring ladder that goes straight up, so don't count on that unless you're a gymnast! The location is great. 10 minute walk to center of town. A many cool shops, coffee places and a few restaurants a block or 2 away. And Laguna Beach is a great beach town with great restaurants and very nice people. We loved it all!!

Beautiful views, house could be cleaner and better equipped

  • 4 of 5

The actually property itself is located in the perfect spot: off a quiet street and right on the beach. It is a funky old house that you can tell has been remodeled several times. The sunsets, views, proximity to the beach and the rest of Laguna are what you pay for.

What we weren’t thrilled about was the lack of cleanliness in certain areas, particularly the kitchen. Several parts of the kitchen were sticky and dirty, and when we used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers (we bought after arriving) on the floors, countertops and fridge the result was disturbingly dirty (we took pics). We also came across several pots, pans, dishes, cups, utensils & other kitchen gadgets that were not clean and needed to be hand-washed or run through the dishwasher in order for us to feel comfortable using them.

The kitchen is pretty well equipped, but some of the appliances (coffee maker, blender) are older and the pots, pans, chopping knives have seen better days (dull, old knives + scratched, worn pots and pans). We also found that basic items were missing, like regular coffee mugs (the house basically just contained tea cups) or enough glass wine and water glasses. My husband and I slept in the upstairs bedroom which was perfectly comfortable, but the tub/shower situation was extremely difficult. The whole thing is jerry-rigged and really meant to be a bathtub only, as the shower pressure is limited and only the handheld head worked. It was not a pleasant experience so I used the downstairs one instead.

We did enjoy the house and property overall, and we had beautiful weather and sunsets every day so we couldn’t complain. We made good use of both the upstairs and deck fireplaces, the hot tub, loungers, grill, outdoor shower, beach access. It really is lovely and perfect for a getaway that feels like a vacation.

But for what we were paying it just seemed like the actual quality and cleanliness on the inside was lacking. Cleanliness is a basic requirement that all rental properties should come with, and given there is a whole cleaning crew that cleans prior to guests’ arriving, it is surprising how dirty parts of the house felt.

We also were surprised to only find 1 beach chair, but 10-12 beach towels which we made good use of. I would think there would be at least 6 chairs given the capacity of the house. We never figured out what the deal was with the grass umbrella on the beach below, but it drew a crowd everyday, so that wasn’t ideal to walk out to.

Unbelievable location and grounds but interior needs a little attention

  • 4 of 5

Location couldn't be better. Right on top of the beach will full access from private gate. Straight out of the door to all the best shops and cafes in Laguna. (Downtown is a little touristy and tacky but lots more independent and cooler places around Thalia etc). Outdoor space is amazing. Full of sun, places to hang out and BBQ. Management company are very communicative and easy to deal with too.

Inside is fine. Kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms all in working order but it's a little dated and a little worn parts and for the price of this place you'd expect a little more. We stayed in many rentals right through our long trip through CA for less than half the price of this that were significantly more up to date and luxurious inside.

Having said that what you pay for here are the views (incredible) and direct beach access which take your stay in laguna to a whole new level. It's certainly worth going to and would stay again but would be nice if it was modernised inside. The standard across CA is high and this place should be right up there.

Spectacular; cozy beach cottage with so much character!

  • 5 of 5

We have come to California for 3 years for a winter month to get some sunshine. We rent a house on the beach, but try a new costal town each time. This was a wonderful home: cozy, well appointed and the least maintenance of any home we have stayed in...perfect for two couples or a small family. The indoor spaces and kitchen are quaint with top of the line appliances. The outdoor spaces are huge and terrace down 4 levels. We walked to 90% of our dinners (house is wonderfully located) and Laguna has so much to offer; restaurant choices are immense. The PM was extremely attentive to the few things that needed attention. House look freshly painted and in excellent shape on a quiet street off the PCH. Would definitely stay there again!
